People's Bible Notes for Colossians 1:12


Col 1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father. In the midst of the trials which call for patience and long-suffering, still joyful and thankful to the Father that he hath made us fit to be partakers. Fit to have a share. Once, then, they were unfit. Of the inheritance of the saints. God's infinite love had called them to be children, heirs, and joint-heirs with Christ. The heavenly inheritance is meant. To have a share with the saints in light is to be heirs of heavenly felicity. In light. Light is a symbol of purity and blessedness. It is in contrast with darkness in Col 1:13.
